Top Knobs Guide to 2022 Kitchen Trends

Kitchen design has come a long way. What was once a room tucked away and hidden from other areas of the home has now become its heart and soul. The kitchen is the space that sparks creativity, sustains residential ergonomics and fuels day-to-day life. As an area that serves such vital household importance, it’s no wonder kitchens are constantly updated and refreshed.

With new and innovative design ideas on the horizon, there are plenty of looks to try out in your space in the coming year. However, before you dabble in the overwhelming amount of options, we’re taking a peek at the 5 leading kitchen trends of 2022 and inspiring images to help navigate this new season of style.

Golden Hour

While matte black has been the “it” color for home accessories in years past, there’s a new aurous hue taking its place next year. Now that decorative hardware is available in a myriad of finishes, all kitchen fixtures are following suit with the availability of more choices. In 2022, the golden palette will be in high demand among interior stylists and homeowners.

This warm and inviting scheme establishes a relaxing atmosphere in the kitchen and casts an illuminating glow in rooms with ample amounts of natural light. With knobs, pulls and appliance pulls available in Brushed Bronze, Honey Bronze, Tuscan Bronze and more, we offer endless decorative pieces to bring this brilliant color range to your home.

Detailed Cabinetry

So long to the days of ordinary cabinetry and the cluttered open shelving look. In its place are unique cabinet surfaces that offer high-impact and dramatic pause. From mesh fronts, glass panels and cane webbing, bespoke cabinetry is taking front and center in the kitchen. While these new cabinet door alternatives allow homeowners to showcase their dishware in style, they also bring an air of mystery and excitement leaving guests to ponder what’s on the other side.

To further up the ante of this bold new trend, designers are teaming these detailed cabinet faces with matching knobs and pulls that feature just as much charm, like our Amwell series or Crystal collection.

Closed Kitchen Concept

In the early 2010s, the open floorplan took precedence in the home, breaking down “barriers” and allowing household members to remain connected while utilizing different areas. But, 2020 and 2021 brought a shift in how we interact with our homes and each room began to take on its own purpose again. During the next year, the kitchen will return to its roots as a place where cooking becomes top priority and mealtime and friendly gatherings can take place without the interruptions of today’s technology.

Here we will see “walls” put back up in the form of swing doors, windowed partisans and small cutaways as a way to define the kitchen space yet maintain the flow of the home.

Island Time

As the closed concept begins to take shape, one area of the kitchen that still calls for open communal use and multi-functionality is the island. The idea that the island has become a catchall will still reign true in 2022 and beyond, however, its designated usage will change at different moments of the day. To ease the transition between playtime, homework, office hours and meal prep, we suggest adding additional storage to the island.

Our favorite solution is installing a small bookshelf and decorative hooks from our Ryland collection at the end of the island. This space then becomes a drop zone where toys, backpacks, bags, school work and papers can be neatly stored without getting lost in the kitchen shuffle.

Pops of Color

We’re not completely moving away from neutrals quite yet, but adding a touch of vibrancy to the kitchen is the perfect way to bring personality and contrast into this central hub . Be it a section of cabinetry, backsplash, piece of furniture or block of paint, we’re all about infusing electric energy into the heart of the home this year.

Our best advice for exploring your chromatic comfort zone is, begin small with muted hues that fit your kitchen’s aesthetic. Then, graduate to more adventurous hues when the time is right. Rich greens, heavy blues and striking yellows are sure to be a hit next year.

Hidden Gems: 6 Spaces to Enhance with Decorative Hardware

When incorporating decorative hardware into the home, two rooms instantly come to mind, the kitchen and bath. Traditionally, knobs and pulls were placed on cabinetry in these spaces as a finishing touch that adds personality and style to the room.

Today, we’re going to share a little secret about decorative hardware that will cast an alluring impact on the entire home…

Are you ready?

Decorative hardware can be installed in every room!

The right knobs and pulls have the power to transform any room or piece of furniture into a custom creation.

Step out of your kitchen and bath comfort zones and read on for inspiration as we share six spaces to enhance with decorative hardware.

Glamorized Closets

Replicate your favorite clothing store by spicing up your closet.

If space allows, add in a charming dresser embellished with jewelry-inspired knobs and pulls. The Crystal collection is perfect for closets. Place a clothing rack at its side to make outfit curation a breeze.

If short on space, install custom shelves to neatly house apparel. Install glamourous hooks from the Ryland collection to display accessories.

Soothing Entertainment Settings

Movie nights are about to become a bit more dramatic.

As the focal point of most living rooms, the entertainment console demands attention. Give it the facelift it deserves by dressing it with decorative pieces that won’t go unnoticed.

Warm bronze tones are a great option for this room. The Honey Bronze finish establishes a calming vibe for those cozy nights in.

Dynamic Dining Rooms

Impress the guests at your next dinner party by serving more than a delicious meal. Dazzle them by decorating the room with statement-making hardware.

From buffet tables and credenzas to china cabinets, each piece of furniture beacons its own set of knobs and pulls that will transform it into a conversation piece.

The Brixton series works like magic in this room. The captivating details found on the knobs and pulls effortlessly draw the eyes in.

Enchanting Entryways

The foyer is the first glimpse guests have of your home.

Leave a lasting impression on each person who walks through the door by designing an inviting space. Set the tone with a series of built-ins where visitors can take a seat, remove their coat or shoes and make themselves comfortable in your home.

Enhance this space even more by adding functional storage accessorized by stylish and modern Flat Black pulls. This will provide guests with a safe space to store their belongings.

Chef Worthy Pantries

The pantry is the perfect area to be adventurous and experiment with design.

Although hidden, the pantry is an extension of the kitchen and arguably one of the most used sections of this part of the home. As a place reserved for meal prepping, it should spark creativity and flavor and serve as an inspiration for recipes.

In this room, opt for a daring cabinet color, one that you’ve always wanted to try, then take the look one step further with contrasting knobs or pulls for added interest.

Elevated Nooks

Be it the end of a hallway, the unused side of a kitchen or a large blank wall, there’s always an unused section of the home begging for some TLC.

Whether you plan for a small workspace, reading corner or crafting zone, transforming this unused space into a beloved spot is simple.

Start with a fresh coat of paint to define the space, personalize with wall decor and add in a piece of furniture that fits your needs. Accessorize the space even further by upgrading the hardware on your furniture selection. The Hopewell pulls are sure to make a statement that will complete your space.
